Surname Saturday: McGee

10 April 2010

The Surname McGee is Irish in origin. It has been found written McGee, Magee, MacGee. The McGee side of my family arrived in Canada in the mid 1800's, eventually, settling in Collingwood, Ontario, Canada. Richard McGee was an early settler of West Gwillumbury Township, Ontario, Canada. Catherine McGee, Richard's daughter, arrived in the United States in the early 1880's, settling in Marquette, Michigan.

Judy, I found the information from Canadian Genealogy Index at ancestry.com. Also, I found information in a book "People of Ontario 1600-1900" that I found at Allen County Public Library, Fort Wayne, Indiana.
